Truly, I already started practicing what the quote is all about just late this year … 3 years later! For sure, I am not the only one and I did try my best.
Another blogger that I am following gave me an inspiration and insight about my topic today. He gives good advises & can explain better than me about what a topic is about… his name is Drew and here is his LINK. Enjoy reading!
His post about “Navigating Life” and I can’t help but to answer in my mind the questions asked in his seminar at work that he put in his blog and explained.
Here’s the thought:
- The most important thing is where you are right now. I now realized that I was focused on the “the life I had before” that it’s hard for me to let go and accept what are the good things staring in front of me… yes where I am right now. I keep comparing but the reality is, it is not fair to compare “a kiwi to a date!” if you get my meaning. Where I am right now is with my family and hope to stay that way.
- Appreciating what you have. I started to see and appreciate what life has to offer for us in our current situation. Nowhere else we will feel these “benefits” and gain more insights about the World and having an “expats (extra-ordinary) life” if we stay put in our comfort zone.
- It’s better to have plans and if one is a failure then you have many other options in place. I often think that after we finished our journey here, that I for one, will be back in my hometown, home Country. I guess now it’s different. I am now open to possibility of saying… “it may not be, yet…” OR “will see what other opportunities out there” OR “we can always go back anytime” as I cannot decide just for myself since having a family, it’s all for one and one for all! Plan A, B, C’s are the best way for us to go ahead. Life’s journey is never easy but somehow we will decide what’s best for our family one contract at a time!
I leave you with another quote and maybe some of you readers can also relate to my post. Feel free to comment and I will truly appreciate it. Thank You for your time.
